During the month of June, we welcomed back our phase 1 families, it has been so exciting to see you all back and settled in nicely.

We have had lots of fun exploring our rainbow science themed activities, which encouraged lots of conversation about colour and how we can change it.

Fun fact: A rainbow is in fact a full circle of light. However, due to most people viewing a rainbow on the ground we only see a semi-circle or arc of the rainbow.

We have all joined in with gardening club, planting new herbs and watering them daily. We even found Parsnips growing in the vegetable patch, so we make vegetable soup. We picked them, washed, used safety knives to chop and then mixed. We got to try real parsnip soup too, which was very tasty

Throughout the month we have explored the 30 days wildness project, with lots of different challenges to complete. We have felt the grass with our bare toes, we’ve been on bug hunts and made binoculars to watch the birds.

Dinosaurs have become our biggest interest though, we have  created a dinosaur small world where we found frozen eggs to hatch, We have made fossils from clay and now we have our own museum to explore fossils and skeletons and of course lots of dinosaur books.

Fun fact: Dinosaurs were the biggest animals ever to have walked on earth.
